    Interesting crowd. Technically strong, but needs more people with finance background to make discussions more relevant to what happens next in the crypto-currency world (well, what will actually work in the real-world).

      ... first, it's a great way to explain concepts in a way that people can understand; and, second, it helps work through the consequences of an idea and helps eliminate many dead ends (which speeds development of the core idea). Anyway, very bullish on the whole bitcoin space and the BitDev meetup. Perhaps a comprehensive talk on a history of money from pre-history to the present would not go amiss? (From which most will soon realize that there is nothing new under the sun when it comes to money. Yes, the technology makes new things possible, but to think that many of these ideas have not been tried before, albeit in a different form, is not correct.)

      There is no doubt that money has been around for awhile, but distributed systems in this form were not possible until now, that is what I meant. There certainly has been nothing like a decentralized p2p payment system before. We have no doubt you are bullish on Bitcoin and the surrounding technologies. My only question was RE clarification of your concerns with colored coins so we can learn how to adapt that into emerging technologies.

    Can I bring a guest? Her name is Shiuan Butler if you can add her to the attendee list.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
